Cornell’s site is one of the useful comprehensive sites for legal research. It provides links to primary and several secondary materials. The following are highlights of this site.

Wex is an online legal dictionary and encyclopedia. This collaborative resource is sponsored by Cornell’s Legal Information Institute, which promotes free, public accessible legal information to internet users.  The site offers an “All Articles” page, previously known as “Law About”, containing links to hundreds of specific legal terms and topics. Term links consist of concise legal definitions and topic links provide descriptive encyclopedia-like overviews. Users can browse through the extensive list of terms and topics, or use the simple search engine available near the top-center of the page. There are two additional link lists available, divided by the categories of definition and overview.

The Introduction to Basic Legal Citation site is another useful resource offered via Cornell’s Legal Information Institute. This site provides law students a primer for using the two main legal citation manuals: The Bluebook and ALWD Citation manual. The “What and Why?” page explains “this introduction aims at building a basic mastery of ‘legal citation’ as codified in those references – a level of mastery that should enable you to do all of your legal reading and much of your legal writing without having to reach for them.”
